Wintertime can be hard on heating and air conditioning systems. Here are four ways to show your HVAC a little TLC this Valentine’s Day.
Wintertime is the perfect time to give your heating and air conditioning some TLC. Just because the outside temperatures are milder doesn’t mean you should ignore your HVAC system. Here are four ways to show your system a little love this Valentine’s Day.
#1 Change That Filter
You’re probably spending more time indoors, and that means paying attention to indoor air quality. Change the air filters regularly – as often as monthly if you have pets or family members with allergies. This also helps the system function more efficiently.
#2 Clean, Clean, Clean
When vacuuming, be sure to clean around the vents. Keep dust and debris out and move furniture and rugs away.
#3 What’s That Noise?
Funny sounds coming from an HVAC system are never a good thing. You get used to the usual sound of your system, so if you hear something unusual, take note. It might be time for a service call.
#4 Schedule Annual Maintenance
February is a great time to schedule annual maintenance for your system. Get it done now and be ready when the temperatures begin to rise in a few months. An ounce of prevention will definitely help keep your system running efficiently and guard against major unexpected and costly breakdowns.
